Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a straight side pint glass (this review from notes taken 7/27/11).
A - Poured golden amber with a 1/2-finger of off-white small to large bubble head. Some retention with spotty lace. Carbonation cascade maintains an island of head.
S - Initial subtle caramel notes, followed by a stronger floral and pine hoppiness, with spicy peppery hints, and a slight boozy finish.
T - Sharp piney hop start flows into steady sharp bitterness. Hints of apple and caramel under the bitterness, finishes with a splash of black pepper and a bit of heat.
M - Medium body with creamy texture. Carbonation sizzles over the center of the tongue. Bit of mild heat down the back of the throat.
D - Most of the flavor in this bottle is extreme hop bitterness and black pepper, which is interesting but not what I'd prefer. Bought a six-pack, but didn't want them all.

Draft at a Thai place in Seattle. Copper pour with small white head. A very nice floral aroma with a hint of citrus to go along. Decent bite, floral flavors, with some nice malt backbone to give it a solid body for a pale ale. Middle of the road, but always excited to try the west coast brews I have never heard of. I would drink it again if available, but would not go out of my way here.

Poured copper orange with a finger of bright white head. Aroma of caramel and some mild pine.
Moderate carbonation and a full, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Quite sweet with lots of caramel, honey, and bread. Just a bit of pine and citrus on the finish.
Interesting to have an imperial pale ale; definitely more malt-forward. Just a hint of booziness and not overly sweet, but one was plenty.
